Module 1
The Power of Attunement: Introduction to Relational EMDR
In this introductory session, gain a foundational understanding of EMDR’s proven ability to heal anxiety, depression, complex trauma, relationship problems, low self-esteem and more. Laliotis provides a step-by-step breakdown of the essentials of the model to take trauma treatment to a new, truly transformational level. In this session, you’ll:
  • Learn the importance of tracking the client’s emotional state somatically and responding to shifts and unspoken changes in real time
  • Discover the role of therapist to encourage, regulate, and validate, based on the needs of the client
Module 1
Relational EMDR Approach to Working with Shame, Overwhelm and Clinical Impasse
Meet Mary, an accomplished, successful professional who’s been in therapy for three years with a goal of engaging authentically in relationships. But she and her therapist have hit an impasse on dating—something she would like to do for the first time in her life. With Laliotis’ help, Mary moves through the impasse in a powerful single session with unexpected insights and a dramatic resolution. In this session, you’ll:
  • Learn how to assess a disconnected client’s ability to access inner experiences
  • Follow subtle client clues to the hidden source of the self-limiting reaction within the client
  • Experience how attunement allows Deany to track moment-to-moment shifts in the client’s emotional state
  • Discover how unprocessed secondary trauma can be as intrusive and disruptive as primary trauma
  • Observe Relational EDMR's full ability to work with a unique and complex history
Module 1
Using Relational EMDR to Address Anger, Trauma, and a Violent History
The client in this session, Carlos, came to therapy with a history of violence, anger, and trauma. He wants to maintain a relationship with his son, keep his job, and stay out of prison. But he’s been feeling increasingly triggered and afraid that he might act out in the same violent ways that he did when he was a member of a Hispanic gang in South Central, LA. Watch as Laliotis establishes a genuine connection with him and then helps him work through the painful memories that have been haunting him. In this session, you’ll:
  • Learn how to identify and work with a client whose traumatic stress resulted from being a witness to a violent event
  • Find out what it takes to establish trust and a contract to do the work with a client who has no reason to trust anyone
  • Discover how to ascertain safety—for both client and therapist—to move forward with work on trauma, rage and violence
  • Experience how EMDR processing continues to work beyond the session, as Carlos returns for a follow-up session
Module 1
Relational EMDR for Working with Shock Trauma, Depression, and Suicide Ideation
Imagine losing not one, but two children to suicide. That is Gloria’s reality at the start of this session. She has been hospitalized several times for deep depression and suicidal ideation. She has a history of childhood abuse and trauma, and she feels hopeless and without meaning in life. Observe in action the moment-to-moment process Laliotis uses to break through Gloria’s resistance and guide her toward healing and a hopeful future. In this session, you'll:
  • Observe the step-by-step process that Laliotis uses to help Gloria find a reason to move forward
  • Gain actionable insights on the importance of touch, attunement and asking permission for trauma work as Laliotis helps Gloria process her pain
  • Experience EMDR reprocessing where the attuned therapist supports the client through almost unendurable pain
  • Learn how to balance the injunction of “first do no harm” with the need to support clients through a full experience of unprocessed events
Module 1
Using Relational EMDR to Overcome Traumatic Stress
Meet Amy, an experienced and skilled EMDR therapist who has found herself stuck and triggered during a session with a challenging client. Realizing that the impasse is likely related to herself, not the client, she has come to Laliotis for help. In this evocative session, you’ll observe the effectiveness of Relational EMDR to guide clients through long-term traumatic stress to reach a place of security and confidence.
  • Learn to sort through the three likely causes of a clinical impasse
  • Take in the power of an open-ended question—Is that voice familiar?— and how it leads directly to the target memory
  • Observe Laliotis' clinical technique as she focuses reprocessing not on Amy’s sense of responsibility for her parents’ dysfunctional behavior, but on undoing her profound and overwhelming sense of aloneness
  • Learn how to check for complete restructuring of the past belief as well as the emotional shift that ensures the transformation will hold in the future
